Home Studio, dedicated room of 17 m2 with a relatively légé acoustic treatment, Pro Tools 8 on iMac with Digi 002, semi-pro use. Motivated by a seductive listening earlier this year in Bordeaux at Espace keyboard.
Positioning the speakers less tight with time, they were directed to me and since then I have removed some HP outward so that even my guitarist, often next to me when we bump, or even to other people in the room can be the center of the stereo like me and especially practically hear the same thing. That's really the comfort! I also removed the speakers, they are on a walk to a little over 1.5 meters from the listening position and respect, a few tens of centimeters, a real equilateral triangle. For sound itself, I have long hesitated with three-way, because for mixer Rock, you have a well-defined medium, electric guitars require ... And there, with TDC 8, I'm in heaven. I have a friend and sound engineer who came Dynaudiophile listening to A / B with its BM5A MK2, it made me Dynaudio article and all the crap! TDC my result (possibly before) are more serious than BM5 (rear vent), the bass sound better and are easier to handle mixing and especially, especially, especially, the medium is very accurate, the sound very BM5 medium, medium too, I feel much more comfortable with a speaker that is truly linear rather than a pregnant accentuated on mediums, listening A / B is obvious, personally I find that really made the coaxial job, vocals and guitars are present, they do not mix, do not drool over each other, and work with the EQ allows to position all of the mix levels, adding reverb s 'clearly understood and the widening of the stereo and depth are easily audible.
In the end my friend walked away, saying: "It is true that for 400 € worth, but you better if you can put more expensive" Here, it's nice to bend a Dynaudiophile in same time a pair 400 € which is almost better than a "safe bet" 1000 € hurts!
Feedback on seven months of Use
Strengths: sufficient power, easy positioning, linearity, accuracy and above ZERO ear fatigue! Finally
Weaknesses: Frankly I have to quibble ... The volume knob is not notched, shame, and the LED behind it bothers me a little, not only it is useless, but in addition it illuminates the wall, but hey, all manufacturers are the same, it must make them laugh illuminate the walls for nothing.
I would do this choice? Forty times YES! This is just the best quality / price ratio on the market today! Coaxial Prodipe perfectly replace the three-way or even monitors overpriced, they are better positioned and offer the results to blush Dynaudio. So respect my TDC 8!
I recently added a subwoofer in the same brand, Pro10Sv2, ahead of my Christmas gifts, active filtering directly via caisson at about 80/90 Hz, and now my reserve power is almost unlimited, my kicks are perfect and my bass down super low. I finally mastered for a listening flawless system, I am no longer any mistakes and my mix sound like I'm finally on other plays, Hi-Fi, cars ... Etc.
